    KSpread and xls


    Is it possible for KSpread to save spreadsheets as excel files?

    Can't see an option in the save format dropdown.

    I don't think they can be saved that way, but check the export option in the menu under File to see if files can be exported to an excel format.

    Chris - I struggled to get KSpread to write Excel files when I first started using Linux, I did not succeed . I just use OpenOffice.org now.
    I also found if you export or saveas from KSpread 'OASIS OpenDocument SpreadSheet' OpenOffice will open the saved spreadsheet - which you can then saveas a Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP (.xls) file. Not sure how much functionality is lost in the process but at least it gets you out of a hole.

    Cheers Jonathan, I'm having issues with openoffice working correctly with compiz-fusion so I've removed it.

    What I can do is save as .odt and then upload to google docs and then save as .xls.

    Not the best way to do things but it can be done.

    I've just had another tinker and now I can get OO.org working with window decorations!

    Let's hope it lasts.
